Extra info for Keynes's General Theory: Seventy-Five Years Later
The analytical framework is a direct extension of Marshall’s supply and demand apparatus for use at the macroeconomic level. The aggregate demand function (D) relates the total money-income expected by industry as a whole to the total level of employment (N), where the direction of causation runs from employment to income. The aggregate supply function (Z) relates the total expected money-income to the total level of employment (N), where the direction of causation runs from expected income to employment.
A theory of employment is then a theory of the decisions of employers to hire labour and of employees to offer their services. In a theory of self-employment, there is no hiring decision. The payment of a money-wage under an employment contract brings money directly into the production process so that it becomes more than a medium of exchange for finished output. The General Theory does not consider the weighty question of why a wage-dependent labour force exists. For Keynes, the distinction between entrepreneurs (employers) and workers (employees) is essential, as in Marx, Marshall and Pigou, but not in Walrasian general equilibrium models.
